Top Questions Answered By Dallas Daycare Negligence Attorney Russell Button Pertaining To Daycare Lawsuits In Texas As Well As Informing Parents Of Their Rights

What Is A Daycare Lawsuit In Texas?

A lawsuit against a daycare facility in Texas In the event your child is injured serves two purposes. The first is to deter that type of conduct from happening again so that another child is not injured, and two, to hold the daycare facility accountable for there misjudgment.  Penalizing facility, forces other facilities to make sure they have all or their ducks in a row and are operating up to code. Deterrence in these cases is achieved by holding the daycare responsible for the damages caused to your kid.

The daycare must have done something negligent, or said differently, the daycare must have violated a daycare safety rule and had that safety rule been followed, it would have been more likely a situation that could have been prevented.

Will The State Of Texas Still Investigate If We Pursue a Daycare Case?

Yes, the State of Texas will still conduct their own investigation from a criminal perspective as well as a violation of daycare safety codes (similar to a building not meeting building code standards). However, neither of these avenues allow for the actual victim, which is the child and the child's parents, to be made whole. That is where the daycare lawsuit comes into play.

What Damages Are Allowed Under The Law In Dallas Daycare Cases?

In daycare cases, we seek medical expenses in the past and future, lost work for the parents to care for the child, mental anguish for the child and physical impairment of their daily activities. There are numerous examples and these are the legal terms, but we make sure to bring the case to cover all forms of damages that your family has and is allowed under law. We prepare every aspect of the case to show the true impact of the injury and the resulting damages on the family, the parents, and the child in their everyday life.

Each case is different and the injuries affect each child and their family differently. Thus, we make sure to independently analyze each injury and the effect it has had on the family. For example, in some cases where the child has been left in a dark closet or outside alone for hours, the child will have severe separation anxiety and abandonment issues. It will not show itself in physical ways, except possibly wetting the bed or crying uncontrollably but these are signs of a serious injury to us. An injury does not only have to be a broken bone or a brain injury. It can be emotional and mental as well.

If your child is receiving or has received medical treatment for their daycare injuries, you may have to pay the medical providers back or reimburse them under the law for injuries caused by a third-party. If you have health insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare that covers your child’s injuries, they will need to be paid back for what was paid out for injuries related to the case, which is also called subrogation or reimbursement. We handle this as it is complex and can be time-consuming as there are a lot of hoops to jump through.
